Situated closest to some of the highly developed industrial cities of Turkey – Kocaeli, Bursa, Izmir and Sakarya, Sabiha Gökçen Airport is one among the two international airports serving the city of Istanbul.
Enjoy the incredible view on both sides of the city while crossing the Bosphorus Bridge, connecting Europe and Asia, or take a nighttime cruise on the Bosphorus to view the lights of the bridge beautifully lit up.
At dusk, enjoy a dazzling view of Istanbul as the city lights come to life from the restaurant at the Maiden's Tower, built on a small island at the Southern entrance of the Bosphorus strait. Take a ferry ride to the Prince Islands, a group of 9 islands off the coast of Istanbul in the Sea of Marmara, where the only forms of transport are bicycles and horse carts.
Head to the Bağdat Avenue, a notable high street with brand name shops and restaurants on both sides for a day of shopping and dining. Enjoy a Turkish Bath at a traditional Hamam; a method used to induce relaxation and cleansing using steam bath and hot rooms to remove impurities and dead skin.
